Q: How do I transplant tulips? I have a pot of them that have died back.
A: Tulips do not tend to flower but once in our area. Therefore, they are considered disposable. You can plant them in a shaded area but do not expect much performance from them.
Q: I want to create a white landscape like I have seen at some historic places. What are some plants that do well here that have white flowers?
A: In sun, try crape myrtle, African iris, spirea, buddelia, oleander and hibiscus. For partial shade, try azalea, camellia, mock orange and white agapanthus.
